If you feel overwhelmed on where to buy houseplants online, you’re in the right place. When I first started my plant lady journey I needed to see plants in person to learn their names and what they looked like. But as time went on, shopping in person because less important because I knew what I wanted and in the midst of a pandemic, I became an online houseplant shopping aficionado. I bought houseplants from every online plant shop so I could tell you all about them. You’re welcome. 😉
In all seriousness, there are a lot of choices out there. Below is a list of my favorite plant shops from Etsy to Amazon and beyond.
Where To Buy Plants Online: Etsy
Etsy has plants!! Like, a lot of plants. The shops below are the ones I’ve bought from and had a good experience with. It is so, so important to read the fine print––the description, care instructions, how shipping works, where they ship from, if any add-ons like heat packs are needed, etc. Let’s dive in to the shops!
Snake River Garden
Snake River Garden offers a wide variety of plants and they pride themselves on delivering healthy and happy plants to the people. This is hands down my favorite plant shop on Etsy. Their packaging is the best I’ve seen and shipping was quick! Highly recommend the Alocasia Bambino and Eucalyptus plants!
Brumley & Bloom
Brumley & Bloom is a boutique floral design studio & greenhouse with locations in Fenton, Flint, and Owosso, Michigan. From tropical plants to their personally curated collection of pots + planters, this shop has it all.
My Plant Obsession
I purchased Caladium Bulbs from My Plant Obsession on a whim with zero expectations. When the bulbs arrived and I first saw them, I thought for sure I was in way over my head. The instructions are clear in how to plant and water them, I followed them and much to my surprise, they did grow! I didn’t expect them to grow as tall as they did, so repotting in a bigger pot might be necessary. Overall, I highly recommend this shop!
I love this shop for more mature plants at good prices. One of my absolute favorite plants came from this shop––the Philodendron Burle Marx. It arrived packaged well and was very healthy, in high quality soil. Plus, their almost 16k five star reviews kind of speak for themselves.
Houseplants for your indoor jungle is their motto. This plant shop is located in Michigan but ships nationwide.
Online Plant Shops
It can be overwhelming to choose an online plant shop to order from. Just as with Etsy, make sure you read the fine print when it comes to returns, shipping, description, and care instructions. Below are plant shops I’ve ordered from and had a great experience with.
Where To Buy Houseplants Onine: Facebook Marketplace
When I was thinking of where to buy houseplants online, Facebook was the last place I would have considered. But if you’ve ever browsed Facebook Marketplace, you know you can basically find anything. After a friend recommended it, I’ve had good luck on Facebook Marketplace for houseplants! In one instance, I found a seller who ships Snake Plants––my expectations were low but it arrived quickly and is thriving.
I also found a local woman who runs a nursery out of her garage that I could go visit in person. She is super knowledgable and I love being able to message her with any questions or to ask if she has certain plants in stock.
